Teens Face More Pressure Than Ever

If you are concerned that your teen is experiencing difficult emotional issues that they can no longer easily discuss with you, you are not alone.

Today, teens are experiencing greater emotional challenges than ever before in both school and home settings. Adolescence is widely known as a complicated time for “growing up” or becoming an individual – separate, confident, and equipped to live an adult life.

Why do today’s teens face more pressure than ever before? Modern teenage lives are comprised of teachers experiencing more overwhelming expectations that consist of fewer parents in the home, more students in the classroom, and demanding state academic standards. For so many reasons, just trying to be a focused student in a school setting today is a far more difficult challenge than ever before. Teens also face amplified peer-pressure levels and risk of bullying due to the hyper-social-media world we live in today. Their parents have overfilled, stressful, busy lives, and the pressure to be a highly effective and perfect parent is hovering on every parent’s identity.

What Are the Problems Facing Teens?

For teens themselves, one human mistake by a teen can be magnified to represent years of your teen’s school life through misuse of social-media. No wonder school absentee rates are skyrocketing.  Children and teens are paralyzed by social anxiety. The “best time of life” childhood of parents or grandparents has been entirely transformed.

This new world has brought with it increasing statistics for distorted body-image, unrealistic appearance obsession, socioeconomic comparisons, and growing teen suicide statistics and addiction rates. All of this can leave parents with sleepless nights and wondering where to turn for solutions or help.
